Stress and Meditation

Stress can cause a bundle of problems, from heart trouble to digestive problems.

There’s no surprise in hearing this; the problem is people often don’t know what to do about it.

Here are some options to implement whenever stress begins to build up.

You can exercise, go into meditation, do activities you enjoy, spirituality (prayer), get into nature, and watch some good ole comedy all will assist to alleviate the harmful effects of stress on the body.

Don’t Overwork

Too often people go and go and go and go… they rarely take a moment to themselves or to their families. Take breaks (vacations, mini-vacations, days off) and surround yourself with people who support you and give you fine healthy vibrations.

Don’t Overreact to Things

Mind your emotions, and don’t keep them bottled up within, as this can cause mental and emotional stress as well as physical symptoms.

The lack of being able to express oneself can lead to depression, sleep problems, eating disorders, and even physical pain. Communicate as much as you need, and if you are gun-shy about talking to people (family, spouse, friends), go to a shrink and let it out.

Communication and companionship is why God made Adam and Eve. Learn to talk about your feelings, or express them through some sort of medium or art. Rap, song, dance, poetry, writing, or even self-talk is good.

Consistency and Moderation

As we have gone through some great health and wellness tips, one of the most vital things to do is stay consistent and do all things in moderation. Keep your emotions in an even-kill and you will enjoy a healthy wonderful life.

Make changes one at a time, and don’t make too many changes at once or you will risk relapsing into old habits. Making these choices a part of your daily life will help you to reach your health goals. Avoid extremes in any capacity. Exercise in moderation when it comes to fitness, food, and having fun.
